Batman and Robin face Karko, a thief from the 26th Century who steals objects from Batman’s time to sell them at great profit as antiques in his own era. After the Batmobile is rendered useless by Karko's future technolofy, the Dynamic Duo decide to try their new invention: the Whirly-Bat, which works as a one man helicopter. However, their new vehicles are also useless against Karko. When all hope to capture the thief is lost, a policeman from Karko's time appears and aids the heroes no their crusade against the thief. Using a special time traveling device, Batman and the policeman from the future manage to lure Karko into a trap, before being sent to the prison of the future.
